I don't have one to share, but I did recently read an article by a residential architect who said that he regarded the inclusion of an ironing board, etc. in a residential laundry room to be a "stupid" idea. His word, not mine. He justified his remark by pointing out the fact that most people who have ever done any ironing on a regular basis choose to do it at a portable ironing board situated in the den or living room, in front of the TV. He said that no one wants to be confined for hours on end to a (usually) windowless laundry room with nothing to entertain themselves. I had to agree with him on that point.
